Elsenham Flower Show Society will celebrate its 37th Flower Show in 2024

Don’t forget, this is our village – our FLOWER SHOW SOCIETY

Every year, in May, we hold a Plant Sale to help raise funds to put on the Show in August.

This year the Plant Sale will be in the Memorial Hall on Saturday 18th May 10am - 2pm.

As usual we have already begun sowing the seeds and taking cuttings for a large range of vegetable and flowering plants ready for the sale in May.
Please refer to our Elsenham Flower Show Society (EFSS) Facebook page for the latest information about the Plant Sale.

Please let us know if you would like any pots, or have small pots you don’t need, we can always use them.

 

Open Gardens Day, Sunday 30th June, 11am - 5pm.  

There are some new gardens opening their gates this year. You will find information on the roads where gardens will be open below.  There is a one-off entrance fee of £3 per adult, which is taken at the first garden you choose to visit. You will then receive a yellow booklet, with information on all the gardens that are open and a  introduction from the garden owners outlining relevant information to do with their garden, which you should find useful. Please show this booklet on entering every garden you visit.  

Some gardens may have refreshments, for a small donation.  I hope you can come along and enjoy seeing all the different gardens in the Village and this may inspire or assist you with your own garden. Hopefully, summer will arrive soon and we can all enjoy our gardens more.

Flower Show

Flower Show - Saturday 19 August 2023  in the Memorial Hall and Marquee on the Playing Field.

If you look at the schedule, you will see the different classes there are to enter, ranging from flowers, vegetables, and fruit, as well as baking, produce, flowerarranging, handicraft and photography classes, including five different children's classes.
You don’t have to be a gardener to enter. Lots of you are photographers, many of you are bakers – both male and female, many of you are a whizz at handicraft and flower arranging. So, why not give it a go? It’s fun and easy to enter. If you start thinking now, you can be organised by August!

Exhibits for the show should be brought along to the Memorial Hall on show
morning between the hours of 9am and 10.45am. If you wish to enter any of the
produce, handicraft or photography classes but will be away at the time of the
show, again, just give us a ring and we will be happy to put your exhibit on display
for you. This also applies to any children wishing to enter, as we do realise that the
show is held during prime school holiday time. We do not want our village children
to miss out!
The Top Tray/Top Vase classes will be sponsored by the Flower Show Society,
with garden vouchers as prizes.


The show opens to the public at 3pm. with an Auction of Produce (beautiful vegetables, flowers, jams,

chutneys and even some cakes) and Prize Giving taking place at around 4.30pm.

Please do come along and support us!

Thanks to all our wonderful growers and supporters who provided so many plants last year, the proceeds from the Plant Sale went a long way towards the cost of putting on the Flower Show in August.

Please let us know if you would like any pots, or have small pots you don’t need, we can always use them.

  • Due to the fact that we have a total of 12 gardens opening (in New Road, Station Road, De Mandeville Road, Park Road, Robin Hood Road, Gilbey Cottages, also Franklin Drive and Sant Close in Elsenham Vale), the gardens will now be open two hours longer than in previous years..

  • The price per adult is £3.00 (accompanied children, free) and you can pay at the first garden you visit.
  • The programme will give you entry to all gardens. It includes a map showing the location of the gardens which are open.
  • Look out for the YELLOW SIGNS along the way.
  •  We are sorry, but no dogs are allowed in the gardens.
